GA-20 (from album Crackdown available on Karma Chief Records/Colemine Records) (by Bryant Liggett)
A yesterday vibe on a 2022 release date on the label. Not that New England’s GA-20 is setting out to be a band from the past however giving a solid backbeat nod to the music, and audio equipment of 1960 and 1970, that kind of audio adoration and sonic supplementation is bound to rub off on your band’s recorded tracks from a current calendar date. Crackdown is a record where fans reared on Classic Rock radio bands hear the Blues that gave birth to the base, then wisely went back in time for education and influence.
The ‘ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-a’s beside the dirty riffs in the album opener “Fairweather Friend” set an old school tone and a fun Boogie beat for Crackdown while cuts like “Dry Run” and “Just Because” are R&B whiskey-weepers capable of pulling the wallflowers out for a slow dance on the gymnasium dance floor. “Easy on the Eyes” is glorious, sloppy, casual, and brilliant while the initial two seconds of AM Radio static gives away to a ripping Garage Rocker that sways and rips in “By My Lonesome” and GA-20 roll out Boogie Blues in “Double Gettin’”.
While much of Crackdown bows down to gritty Garage Rock Blues GA-20 make sure you think its 1955 with cuts like “I Let Someone In” and “Gone for Good”. Two guitars, no bass, and a drummer packing a wallop on a straight up kit. It is honest music in true-believer delivery. Crackdown and GA-20 show just how much fun the Blues can be. Forget any watered-down, 12-Bar Blues manufactured cuts that benefit from Classic Rock radio, GA-20 are Blues and Rock music born to Boogies….as well as giving time to wail and weep.
